NOTEBOOK 13 In MILK & HONEY, Mrs. Bright and her traveling companion V make the close acquaintance of a salesman whose wares both titillate and confound Brigette. While delayed twice across the continent toward her reunion with her husband H, Mrs. Bright reexamines the source and direction of her lusts even as she engages once more in their fulfillment. SERIES OVERVIEW “I have never slept with a man.” So begins The Sex Diaries Of Mrs. Bright. The year is 1905. Newlyweds Brigette and her husband H are honeymooning aboard a cruise liner headed for New York. It’s Brigette’s first marriage, his second. But they’re not alone. Accompanying them is Brigette’s older female companion, M, a friend Brigette has known intimately since she was seventeen and the woman who introduced her to the world of physical joy. Through Mrs. Bright’s witty and lasciviously detailed diary entries, we witness her search and discovery of a myriad ways to give and receive absolute pleasure—to her husband, her lover, and herself. A document on friendship, marriage, and the complications of securing happiness, The Sex Diaries Of Mrs. Bright reveals that sex in the Edwardian era was as pure, dirty, and fun as can be imagined.
